Vintage Styled Halloween Gourd Witch Wall Lantern

Here is my latest gourd project that have offered in my e-bay auctions... She was made from this really strange shaped gourd, it was short and flat, and I am sure there is a name for this type of gourd, but it slips my mind right now. So I took it and turned it up on its side and sculpted her face on the bottom side of the gourd, which had the nice round shape, then I cut out the top, which became the back of the piece, which allows her to be hung on a wall as a wall sconce lantern. Then she has paper inserts behind the cutouts of her face which really gives her an vintage look. The n she is lit up with a battery operated flick flame which when turned on, stays lit for 8 hours and goes off automatically, then turns back on again in 24 hours, and so on and so on! Its really quite neat! Here is how she looks in the dark....
I just got done adding her to my e-bay listings so you can click on the image to go view the sale, and see more pictures and find out more details about her....

Thank you for looking!
